Everybody wants it. Wild fur from Northern Canada. Korea, Japan, China, Hong Kong and Greece are buying more fur, and they’re buying more types of fur.
That has translated into the highest fur prices in 10 years.
“I’m a trapper and you can bet your bannock I’ll be out there,” said a trapping advisor to the Nishnawbe-Aski Nation.
North American Fur Auctions is enthusiastic. “We have entered a new era for the wild fur business!” the auction house exclaims in its wild fur forecast for the upcoming season.
Trappers using the NAN Fur Depot last year averaged $50-60 for under-ice beaver, $65-70 for marten and $90-100 for otter.
